Oops. Some bugs...

There are a bunch of bugs in this version of the app. Often today's paper does not load - you just get yesterday's paper, even though the Californian has sent an email advising that the paper is "out" and ready to read. I had to sign in four times to the paper this morning, which is really frustrating when it comes up in the middle of trying to read an article. Also, many of the pages failed to load.

New software update not an improvement

I much prefer the previous software for the E-edition. It was easier to navigate and didn’t have back/forward buttons obscuring text. Why the change?

Update is terrible.

Why are you adding an iOS advertisement on top of the advertisements in the paper. We are subscribing with our money and we should not have these ads.
